A land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to Etienne Guigal. A commitment to work together to follow in his footsteps, to communicate the family’s passion and create so many emotions.

Cultivated on a unique geological formation close to the famous ‘colline des Bessards’ in Hermitage, this Saint-Joseph has all the elegance of its appellation combined with the power of its neighbor facing the river. It is a rich and plush Syrah from the most impressive and exclusive slopes of Saint Joseph.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospices is a head-turner that’s going to compete with the top vintages of this wine. Hermitage-like notes of crème de cassis, graphite, acacia flowers, and subtle oak give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, tannic effort.

Food Pairing

It’s a formidable wine to be paired with red meat.
